ST JOHNSTONE keeper Zander Clark hopes to get back on track against Dundee at McDiarmid Park tomorrow.

The highly-rated shotstopper has played six games in a row while Northern Ireland international Alan Mannus has been sidelined through illness.

Clark enjoyed an unbeaten run until the Perth outfit were rocked 1-0 by Kilmarnock last week. Now he is eager put things right in the home clash against the bottom-of-the-table Dens Park side.

He said: “Last week’s loss was just one those games. We didn’t take the chances we created and Kilmarnock scored with their only one. 

“Pretty much the only thing I had to do was pick the ball out of the back of the net. These things happen and now it is about how we react to it.

“It was frustrating, but we will dust ourselves down and go again against Dundee.

“A defeat was always going to come for me at some point and no-one here saw me as a lucky mascot.”

Clark added: “I’m delighted to be getting a run of games. We have been playing well and results have shown that.

“It was frustrating sitting on the bench last season after playing on loan at Queen of the South.

“Once you get that taste of first team football you want more. However, I realised it was going to be tough to come back here and play with Alan doing so well.

“I feel fortunate to have been given the chance.”
